'16 Captains Chairs reupholster recommendation

My captains chairs just started flaking on a '16 Bounder.
I am looking to get them reupholstered. Mine are Lexington not Flexsteel. The one place in Iowa does Flexsteel and quoted me $2,000 each. I can buy brand new captains chairs for $1300 each with real ultraleather so they aren't viable.
Bradd and Hall does not provide only the covers.
I called REV and they said Bradd and Hall was the only place they knew of that provides covers.

Any recommendations on a place that does them at a reasonable cost? I am going with real ultraleather.

I'm currently having my interior redone. Ordered the footstool from Lisa Bauer, who does the Flexsteel chairs, but said she can't do my Lexingtons, so I'm having my L-shape couched redone by a local guy that does excellent work. As much as it kills me to put that much $$ into this POS couch, I have no alternative and dont want a regular couch. It going to have foam added and some frame altered to make it comfortable. Also have been to Bradd and Hall twice over the last few weeks trying to decide on buying new captains chairs or reupholstere mine. They told me they have a local shop provide them with the seat covers, and B&H just does the install on the seat bodies there at the shop. (They dont do reupholster work anymore) They are nice and appear alot better built than our OEM chairs. B&H have a swivel recliner that I really like that will be done in the same UL material to replace the Ureo chair thats has also peeled than Im going to buy. Small fortune being spent do to this peeling issue. My local guy has quoted me more to redo mine than if I just buy new. To redo ours, they have to be taken apart, each piece separated to be used as patterns for the new material. very time consuming. Whereas buying from a business that does sells captains chairs already have the patterns and just have to cutout and sew the pieces together. Ive seen captains chairs for as little as $800, but I dont believe it will be UL.
BTW, UL isn't really leather.

Can you share with who did the work? Or message me if you donít want to share publicly. Thatís worth it to me to travel there on my way back to Florida in the fall.
Thanks

Where are you in Iowa? I had my Sunstar seats done here in Moline IL by



Quality Upholstery
Auto upholsterer
7+ years in business ∑ 440 40th St ∑ (309) 292-5190


I think the pair was about $1200. But I had to R and R them.

TN would be better for me besides the fact it is cheaper there from the prior post. But thanks. I am waiting to hear back on that.

Awesome. I'll be passing through there in the fall so I can hopefully contact them and schedule something.
Any chance you can post pics how yours came out?
